2004 Award
Gameboy Advance SP
(Nintendo of America, Inc. $99.99 Score:) Our Gameboy experts gave high marks to the improved screen that has more light and bolder graphics. These games can become all-consuming, so be sure to set some ground rules. That said, they are great for road trips for older kids. You can also add a Game Link so that kids can play against each other.

Age: Later School Years. Award Year: 2004.

2004 Award
Travel Lite-Brite
(Hasbro $7.99 Score:) We are not in agreement about this toy (probably because one of us wanted this toy for her 5th birthday and never got it!). That said, there is the potential that all the little pieces (all 160 of them) will fall on the floor of the train, plane, or automobile. But still, it's a lot of fun if you like Lite Brite!

2004 Award
My First Puzzles
(Infantino $12.99 Score:) There are 6 big cardboard puzzles that you’ll want to introduce one at a time. There are 2 two-piece puzzles, 2 four-piece puzzles, and 2 six-piece puzzles with handsome graphics—ducks, monkeys, and ’gators. Also fun, an Alphabet Train ($12.99 ): each train has a letter in upper and lower case, and an object that starts with the sound of the letter. Still more challenging, Counting & Shapes Floor Puzzle ($12 ) a 30-piece train that’s more complex. Kids need to find geometric shapes before they can figure out the sequence of the trains and then add the animals to the top of the train. This takes some patience and a little help for beginners. 4–7. (800) 365-8182.

Age: Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2004.
